Baseball starved Sox Red Sox fans warming up... getting ready for the Sox to warm up.
The World Series Celebration officially ended a little after 9:00 this morning . The first official full squad workout kicked off the 2008 season.
The fact that this team returns virtually intact makes things a lot easier for manager Terry Francona.
"It's easy actually to get your work done because guys know what's expected.," says Francona. You don't back off. I think you're a little more organized and you can actually get more work done."
"It was wild walking throught that tunnel right there," added Dustin Pedroia, "Everyone's screaming at you. It's good to be a Red Sox right now. We've just got to keep it going."
Jacoby Ellsbury aggres. "What we did last year was great. We've got to come out here, it's a new season, a new season, gotta start fresh and work hard."
First day, pretty routine. We'll be back with you Monday with our first full week of spring training reports.
